|The real thing. And the fine sand, past the small stones is interesting to witness.|
Back to the highway that took us from Kahului City to Hana, it offers extraordinary sights and endless discoveries; including endless jungles filled with cypress, bamboo and other foliage I could not begin to name.
|Bamboo is prevalent everywhere on this island but more particularly so on the eastern part of the island.|
Truth be told, the waterfalls we have back home, on the BC coast, are far bigger and more powerful than those on Maui. The difference though is the high humidity here and the jungle setting that sets them apart.
|This Pa'iloa Beach setting is stunning|
|I could sit here all day and just take in the surf crashing on the volcanic outcroppings.|
|A nice gentleman, working his way back from the volcanic trek to the waterside, offered to take our photo.|
|The cliff-side rock wall is black like the sand on the beach.|

By 2:30 pm, it was time for us to leave to head back for Lahaina. Although only a less than 70 km drive, it would take us better than 2.5 hours to complete that journey,
It was another very good day on the island of Maui. Thanks for dropping in.
